Movie Info

Although not the best outing for Ms. Hepburn, the rest of the cast helps to carry this retelling of the Tennessee Williams play about a Southern lady who tries to draw on her more genteel past to inspire confidence in her crippled daughter and to set her son on a path that will net him more than his "poetry" writing.

Critic Reviews for The Glass Menagerie

  • With a play this good, even a pedestrian cast would be hard pushed not to shine, but, the addition of the kind of acting calibre on offer in this superior version results in a truly moving couple of hours.

  • Moriarty and Miles took home two Emmys each ... Waterson and Hepburn were also nominated. It's directed with grace and generous long takes by Anthony Harvey, who only slightly 'opens up' the play. The fine original musical score is by John Barry.

    Kudos to Hepburn for her outstanding performance in this fabulous adaptation for TV of Williams' play, as she finds the perfect tone for her character at just one step back from being annoying, while Miles and Moriarty shine in their wonderful long scene together.

    An odd play but well performed with some strong performances by Hepburn and Miles.
